Security deep-dive sessions

5. Proactively protect your organization by securing your systems

Travelling requires bringing multiple services together and selling a combined package requires a considerable amount of trust between vendors. In today’s IT driven environment this trust largely rests on counterparties proactively securing their IT systems and connections. With the increasing demand by customers for evermore services, applications and systems are continuously updated as organizations engage in Digital transformations. Considering that 90% of cyberattacks leverage vulnerabilities in application code at some point and an estimated 80% of applications contain at least one vulnerability; application security is one of the key areas to engage in when proactively defending your organization. This session explores methodologies and tools that can be used to lower your breach risk through application security while, critically, not slowing down the pace of your application delivery.
